Summer in colour

Everything about this shoot by Manuel Nogueira is carefully orchestrated to catch your eye. If colour is an instrument, it’s one he uses with alarming aptitude – from selected furnishings against the rusty, industrial backdrop (the frame of a bright orange sun-lounge, a sun-yellow wall) to the rainbow of swimwear. Carmelita Mendes and Barbara di Creddo wear the kinds of swimsuits that you only wear if you’re comfortable having all-eyes-on-you as you stroll the beaches and boardwalks in summer. Their equally as bright shoes, metal jewellery and sunglasses confirm what the swimsuits hint at: they’re not the least bit afraid to stand out.

If there’s one other element capturing the attention of the viewer in this shoot for Elle Brazil it’s the makeup. Like everything else it’s bold, bright, and ultimately strong, from metallic coloured liquid liner to strong brows and rich red lips.
